straight, not flinch, not back off and recognize he will be double teamed. the fact is, jim lehrer is part of the cultural left. so romneyville to communicate pastlerrer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that, i think he could have a very good night. i think you could see a very different races by thursday morning. >> greta: why do you think jim lehrer will be unfair? he has the spotlight on him. i mean, you know, he -- i assume he will try his best to be fair? >> he will try his best to be fair. i am not saying he is partisan. i am saying he comes out of a news media culture, the whole network of where he lives and operates, what he does, which has the assumptions of the left and which asks questions on the framework of the left. they are very often ntheir mind being totally neutral, when they ask request questions that clearly reflect the biases of the left. that's a key part of this. >> greta: do you think that in general, moderates try to pit one candidate against another, to generate a spark in order to generate news? >> i think all too often, moderators try to p

moderator, jim lehrer, knows for sure what questions will be asked. he's getting plenty of advice. just take a look at this snapshot. >> question today, what would you ask the candidates in tonight's debate? >> one of the questions we know is going to be front and center each candidate whether or not the voters actually trust them in handling the economy. >> where'd the money go? who's got the money? who's got my money? and what about a little health care? >> two words, obama care and romney care. >> are you better off than you were three and a half years ago? is the world safer? do you think we're going in the right direction? >> a lot of that, charlie, depends on the questions. >> let's get straight to our cnn contributor margaret hoover and the rest of our unsolicited advice panel. margaret. >> thanks a lot, wolf. here we are, we've got a debate tonight. we have six 15-minute segments on the economy. carly, we were talking before in the green room. you think your question would be about taxes. what would you ask the governor or the president? >> well, first of all governor romney has been
moderator, jim lehrer, of pbs. >> both candidates saying for months it will be crucial. >>> also, in this half hour, in this first half, a new showdown is heating up. a tree that almost killed, well, mcsteamy as you know him from "grey's anatomy." his wife was awe alone in the backyard. a tree fell on her from the next door neighbor's yard. a big legal battle brewing. >> and the lead singh from the smashing pumpkins. >>> first, we're going to get to the latest trouble for american airlines. a story we first brought you on "good morning america." another flight was forced to make an emergency landing last night. and abc's jim avila has been tracking all of the developments. jim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. american pilots could be at the bargaining table as early as today, perhaps bringing to an end a string of delays that is crippling the reputation of the bankrupt airline which seems to be suffering one maintenance problem to another. this morning, the embattled american airlines under the microscope again. >> i have a gear unsafe flight. >> reporter: ano
believe i can. i talked about the principles -- megyn: there is jim lehrer who will be moderating tonight. >> it wasn't just vice presidential goarms team that thought oh won. there is a report that george stephanopoulos thought he won. he apparently declared the nine debates, 8 had been won by the democrats. later on these things harden. that'sy think the afterdebate is as important as the debate itself. what gets picked up and what gets focused on. my former colleague suggested the gaffe measure. has a gaffe come out. one of the tests will be, does the opposite side cite something the other candidate said in a debate in the an ad to make fun of it. megyn: romney is not a guy who makes a lot of fun of himself speak of making fun. and he's not a guy who has shown a lot of aptitude in connecting with the average joe at home. it seems like the folks who like him like him despite the fact they don't necessarily feel warm and fuzzy about him the way they would a ronald reagan. does he need to change that tonight, bill? >> i think he needs to tell people what he stands for. i think he spent th
the candidate to call on that? >> steve: i think it depends on the moderator. let's see how jim lehrer does. a poll out this morning, you can see among, i believe registered vote, the president within the margin of error. so it's absolutely pretty much tied. >> brian: that's just one poll. >> steve: national journal has them tied at 47%. what's interesting about the "wall street journal" thing is that apparently, according to the polling and the morning paper, a majority of americans now would like to see one party rule in washington, d.c., where one party controls the white house and both houses of congress as well. >> brian: isn't that why we broke from the king of england, so we could have some type of discussion? >> martha: it tells something about how people feel about the divisionsiveness in washington. let's give it a shot. maybe if we have the same party control in both branches and in the president, maybe we'll get somewhere. it's a sad commentary on people's ability to work together. >> brian: in florida, the polls are tightening up and in virginia, thereabout within two points of
in this process including jim lehrer to try to make the last 40 days better than what we've seen so far. the country deserves better and these candidates are better than their campaigns in terms of trying to actually tell the truth about the challenges we face. >> thank you to emmy darling mark halperin for leaving us less depressed and less confused than when we started the hour. thanks for your time, mark. >> thanks, alex. >> coming up, not so great expectations, both campaigns try to lower the bar ahead of tonight's debate we will try to sneak a peek inside the playbook. smoke screen and strategy with the obama campaign's ben labolt, just ahead. time for the entrepreneur of the week. andrew is the fourth generation of rosenwach tanks. find his family's wooden water tanks on hundreds of new york city rooftops. these tanks are shaped by hand with half century old tools. he says you don't throw out what works. you just build upon it. watch your business this sunday morning at 7:30 on msnbc. i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare d
. it will be moderated by jim lehrer, host of pbs's "newshour." they'll have 15 minutes. ask a question, two minutes to respond. jake tapper pointed out on "world news." the president a little loquacious. one of his responses to jake was five minutes. got to cut that down a little bit. >> the media, we are guilty of this. we cover the horse race. we cover -- the one-liners or awkward moments. >> zingers. >> people watch -- i hope millions tune in to watch, they pay attention to the substance, how the two men differ in policies as opposed to who looked nervous, who had a little bit of sweat, who gave the quirky one-liner. >> check on the watch. >> yeah, hopefully people focus on the stuff that matters. we'll see. we'll see. >>> in pennsylvania big day today, there will be a vote on the voter i.d. law. it could still be appeared to the state supreme court here. we have seen that play out in different states around the country. virginia, ohio. so as just a few weeks out starting to see some of the judges take action one way or the other. how it is going to turn out. pennsylvania pay attention to that t
minutes and then there is a rebuttal. megyn: jim lehrer of pbs will be moderating. they devote the rest of the 15-minute block to a discussion. so hopefully there will be a chance to press the candidates for followup, or real answers if they try to dodge. because you know and our viewers know having watched 25 presidential debates during the primaries, they all do it. they dodge. they hear this is a question on jobs. what's my policy on jobs, this what is i'm going to say without necessarily answering the question asked. hopefully the mat, the discussion after the initial response will give us a chance to hear real answers. having studies up on these debates it seems like the need many gets moved not so much by these soaring rhetorical moment but by a gafer that one of them may have or by one moment of connection that they may have with the viewers at home. ronald reagan, there you go again. bill: i think you make a great point on that. what you are saying is it's built in a format that will help encourage robust exchanges that would alloy the other to challenge the other one. megyn: we
